Overclocking

Overclocking the Gainward is as simple as all nVidia overclocking is these days, and whilst we don't get quite the extreme speeds we've seen from a couple of models it's still impressive with +120MHz on the boost making 1100MHz then the GPU Boost taking it right up to 1230MHz  when under load plus we managed to get another 300MHz effective out of the GDDR5.

Temperatures

As a single card the cooler works very well, as there is plenty of room for the fans to suck cold air in and expel it out the sides. In an SLI arrangement though the temperatures quickly rise and the fans have to work harder, and therefore louder, to try and maintain the temperatures. We might even see a couple of scenarios where the GPU Boost 2.0 has to declock the card to keep things around the 80° threshold.

Wow , those number for SLI are amazing , but I'm going to say pricey and overkill for most people . Still I'd love to have just one of these , if for anything else the looks and the ability to really clean up the fans properly .

Great review .Quote

They sure do perform well

I thought these Gainward versions would be some of the more expensive non ref 780Tis. Others I have seen knocking about are £630-£650+ these coming in at £600 isn't bad.

Saying that though, It's hard to talk about the price of them with a strait face, the price of the 780Ti is general is bad. But at least these Gainward ones are cheaper than the others that are about.Quote
